Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The plot's slavish schmaltz proves as oppressive as the harsh winter that descends upon the dogs. – Peter L'Official, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Live-action animal adventures have always been a Disney specialty, and this one has a pretty compelling plot. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, May 27, 2011

Fresh: Eight Below is dazzling to look at, and nicely intercuts the human relationships with the pooches' awesome struggles to stay alive in the white, wintry wild. – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: ... the canine cuteness, breathtaking action and acts of bravery are worth braving the Disney elements -- overpowering, poignant music, an unnecessary romantic subplot -- if you like your movies doggy-style. – Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail, Jun 24, 2010

This movie was one of the best dog movies I have seen. When a part was sad I cried. When it was funny i laughed. this movie is great for the whole family. You have to see this movie. PS It is quite sad though:( :( :(


This is a very good movie, great plot line, but if you like dogs alot, I promise you will cry; it is sooo sad


This movie was the saddest, most depressing movie I have ever seen. I had to leave the movie theater multiple times because I was too sad to watch the rest. I thought it was well done, but too sad for people that cry during any movie.
